    Default Pick One

    Simply pick who'd you rather keep

    Iman Shumpert or Jeremy Lin

    JR Smith or Steve Novak

    Josh Harrellson or Jerome Jordan

    My answers

    Shumpert- all around player, legit potential to be a top 5 Guard in 2-3 more years. Has legit chemistry with our Big 3

    JR Smith- Novak is more consistent but JR has game changing ability. Offensively and sometimes Defensively he is no slouch. When he's hot he's HOT, muy caliente

    Jerome Jordan- His upside as a defensive back up 5 is through the roof. He needs to be Tyson's shadow all off-season, that will one help his growth and 2 give us a guy who can be a trade asset or potential replacement down the line

    Shump over Lin for defensive reasons. Shump will improve his offensive game but I doubt Lin will ever be a lock down defender.

    Smith vs Novak is tough because its hard to replace what both of them bring off the bench. One player explosive and the other a lock on 3pt shooter. Gun to my head I guess I choose JR, but reluctantly.

    JJ over Jorts since there's really nothing special about Jorts. He can be easily replaced. We all know how rare decent 7 footers are. Plus I agree with you on having him shadow TC.

    By the look of this thread, you're seriously getting ready to see some of theses guys go huh...

    i just hope we make a good enough run this season , because if some of these players leave chances are our roster next season won't be as good as this one, with all the expiring contracts that we have :\

    Shumpert>>>Lin

    Im not fully sold on the Linsanity, in time he will be a well polished PG but if i had to pick right now im keeping shumpert. The way this team is built Lin is not mandatory. Throw in a vet PG like Andre Miller, jason kidd or nash and we would be just fine. I feel Shumpert just brings more to the table. He can put on a show offensively and defensively, his Rebounding is underrated and his FT shooting is above good, he can also cover 3 positions on the floor, and he's only 21. Im not saying Shump has more of a chance to be a star in this league than Lin, because both have potential to be stars, but ill take defense first.

    JR smith>>>>Novak

    run novak off the 3 point line and he is close to useless, i love novak but there are other 3 point specialist in this league maybe not as good as novak but anyway, Jr is automatic points off the bench he's young, athletic and can drop 20+ any given night, his defense is very underrated as well.

    Jerome>>>>Jorts

    Jerome may not ever become a dominant center like the bynums and howards, but if he keeps working at it he can become a reliable center. If he continues to work hard i can see him maybe becoming javele MCgee type center.

    Jorts is just a hustle guy who'll grab you a few rebs and give you some hard fouls, maybe knock down a jumper or 2. I dont really see him becoming anything special.

    Shumpert is playing near elite level defense as a rookie, and has shown he can be trust to hit a big shot.

    JR only because he can do more than just score.

    Jordan and Jorts are bums.

    If STAT and Melo sacrifice some money we can sign everyone to nice deals, we know Dolan can spend money without bird rights its hard

    We can easily replace the guys we have around our Big 3(maybe not Shumpert and slightly hard to find a JR type and a dead on 3 guy like Novak but those guys are out there)

    We just dont have a pick in what is a deep draft

    The one I'm really torn on is losing JR Smith, him and Melo have that LeBron/Wade, KD/Westbrook type relationship/chemistry and Woodson is helping JR become more complete, I'd give him the MLE without hesitation

    Yea I would rather give him the MLE over Lin, but business-wise it's much more worth it for the franchise to keep Lin with that MLE.
    One thing's for sure, its gonna be an interesting off-season.. because its not only about the players, but nobody knows what management plans regarding Woodson.
    We have something good going on, I believe Grunwald can make the best out of the situation, and only Dolan will be able to fu*k it up.

    I totally disagree .....I would give the MLE to LIN.....We need a starting PG and Lin is it.......But to answer the thread I would take Shump over Lin.....

    JR is gone.....

    If Woodson is our coach then Lin is not the answer at point

    If you notice Woodson really limited Lin's PT since he took over, Lin has to have the ball in his hands and Melo doesn't play well off of him. We need a Chauncey Billups type to be successful in all honesty

    Basketball Wise- Move Lin for pick and/or vet PG

    Business Wise- Keep Lin and live off of the money he brings to a Franchise

    Melo and STAT per CBA can restructure

    Player contracts can be renegotiated downward in extensions, as long as the player’s salary does not decrease by more than 40 percent. Previously, renegotiations could only increase a player’s salary. This could provide another key avenue for teams to maintain roster flexibility and add players with space created by restructuring existing contracts, similar to the NFL.

    I guess guys dont do their research

    As for a PG, I'd love to get Randy Foye, we dont need a playmaking PG we need a solid floor general, Foye is a combo guard but has Chauncey-like potential for us especially being able to play off of Melo, he can be a 16 and 6 guy for us
